Before & After Pictures


Today, safety is on everyone’s mind. Safety in our office is no exception, so we want to inform you about our infection control and sterilization procedures. Sterilization and disinfection are given the highest priority. We treat each patient the same, and therefore use the universal precautions for our patients to prevent the transmission of the dreaded HIV/AIDS virus, Hepatitis virus and other infectious diseases. We provide the highest level of safety so that you feel comfortable knowing these procedures are routinely performed.

All our staff involved in patient care also share a very concerned attitude in this regard. We follow a stringent Four- tier sterilization process for our instruments. Disposables like needles, syringes, glasses, etc. are all discarded after being used once. Appropriate protective garb such as disposable gloves, protective eyewear and masks are always worn when treating patients. For surgical procedures (implants, surgery, etc) the work surfaces are covered with sterile drapes, and sterile gowns are worn.

All diamond and metal drills are disinfected in Korsolex (glutaraldehyde) solution to kill all bacteria, viruses and spores (including Hepatitis B, AIDS and tuberculosis).

The plastic instruments and trays used are also sterilized in glutaraldehyde solution .

Infection control is one of our utmost priorities.

The Four steps sterilization protocol used for our instruments is as follows:

Step One :

All the instruments are thoroughly washed and cleaned in an ultrasonic cleanser and scrubbed with spirit swabs to remove any attached debris.

Step Two:

The instruments are then immersed in 5% korsolex sterilizing solution for 45 minutes for standard disinfection.

Korsolex Sterilizing Solution Offers:

(a). Complete viricidal action (including hepatitis B, HIV).
(b). Total bactericidal, fungicidal, tuberculosidal and sporisidal activity.
(c). Lethal action against microbes, highly suitable for emergency disinfection.

Step Three:

After cold sterilization, instruments are packed in individual sterile packs that contain instruments, gauze, cotton rolls and suction devices. Patients feel reassured when a new pack is opened in front of them prior to commencement of treatment.

AUTOCLAVING (Steam under pressure) in a steam autoclave at 134 degrees centigrade is the standardized sterilization method used in our dental office. These measures are carried out rigorously and consistently to make sure of our patient’s safety, as autoclaving have been shown to kill all bacteria, viruses and spores.

Step Four:

The instruments are stored in a sealed sterile environment until used.
